Thanks for the replies, here's the layout of the project I forgot to add
in the first post (no "trunk" subdir in trunk):


The directory releases/0.5 indeed existed already in the supplied
I've also tried on a non-existing dir first (releases being there of

Here's the output of the copy attempt to non-existing release, looking
as strange to me as the other.

svn copy -rHEAD http://my.forge.com/svn/test/trunk
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/test/tags/0.5a'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/sipalyzer/tags/0.5a': 302 Found

BTW subversion server 1.1.4 (r13838, mod_svn), client too.

As you can see, I have already 2 releases, which were created that way
(on 1.1.3 using Eclipse Subversion Plugin).

Hints again very appreciated
